    I've got a heap of Berlin relics, some documents from the reich chancellery and the plate taken from the fuhrerbunker which is what I reckon will be the main display pieces. The plan is to start from left to right, underneath the reichstag pic I'm thinking of displaying the German helmet I have, the right hand side I'm looking at doing a model of the fuhrerbunker with the bottom section of the bunker leading up to the top "vorbunker" and then above that the chancellery. I'm looking at displaying the fuhrerbunker plate in the lower part of the model, and reich chancellery gear in the higher parts so, hopefully, it will all tie together. The background of each display area will also have a pic behind it as a backdrop. It probably sounds pretty strange but I think if it works out how I've planned it to, it should look alright. I hope so!

    Got a little bit more done today fellas, the little white square at the top of the narrow display section will not remain blank, it'll either have a picture or a description of what is being displayed. Behind it will be some of the wiring for the lights, it is also where I'll mount a down light for the narrow display cabinet I think. Click image for larger version.

    Thanks James, much appreciated mate. So far it has cost me roughly $47 in materials to build what I have up to now. That price doesn't include the big pic of the reichstag, it's just the melamine and timber bracing. The only other cost is my time which is meaningless when it's a labour of love.

    Excellent work! That will be a Fine display section for sure when completed! Keep us up to date when you do!

    Started a bit more this arvo, I won't get much more done today but I hope to get a bit done tomorrow. I've built a false floor in the bottom of the display, I will have a fold down door in this section to hide a storage area. It'll probably get filled with books but I can also use it to store pieces which I can rotate through the display at different times. Above this section will be the second display area.Click image for larger version.
